Lifetime Giving Societies
Stevens’ Lifetime Giving Societies honor the university’s most generous alumni and friends, those whose vision and support enable Stevens to prepare leaders who are ready to tackle the challenges of a rapidly changing world. Founded in 2014, six Lifetime Giving Societies recognize all donors and their spouses whose total giving to Stevens exceeds $100,000 during their lifetime. The name of each society celebrates individuals who are intimately connected with the history of Stevens. Through their remarkable commitments, members of our Lifetime Giving Societies create a strong foundation on which Stevens flourishes.
